David Moyes hopeful Wilfried Zaha comes back to United a better player

David Moyes has spoken out asking Manchester United fans to trust him over the choice to loan out £15million winger Wilfried Zaha to Cardiff City until the end of the season.

Since joining up with the squad in the summer, after signing, then immediately loaned back to Crystal Palace in January 2013, the young England winger has struggled to get into the first team, with rumours of struggling to keep up with the pace in first-team training sessions at Carrington.

United manager David Moyes feels that the loan move was the right time for both player and club.

Moyes said:

“It is good for him, it is good for his development. Everybody will have a chance to see how he plays

“The idea is he shows what he can do and comes back a better player for Manchester United.”

Wilfried Zaha impressed on his first outing for Cardiff City, coming on as a substitute and gaining two assists in the process

Moyes continued, stating that fans have to believe in what he is seeing both on and off the pitch, again pointing out the the loan move was the best option.

He added:

 “At times you have to believe what the manager is seeing as well.

“There is big competition for those wide areas.

“When I came in, I had Antonio Valencia, Nani and Ashley Young. Then we had the emergence of Adnan. Shinji can play off one of the sides.

“I have seen Wilfried training every day as well. I am privy to that.”

Wilfried Zaha will stay at Cardiff City until the end of the season, we will be following his progress.

“I have seen Wilfried training every day as well. I am privy to that.” – Moyes.

Fine, but why on Earth couldn’t Zaha have game time in a team which is struggling for a bit of spark and excitement. If his rivals are Young and Valencia, it’s a no-brainer.

If Zaha had struggled then by all means send him out on loan, but he hasn’t been given a chance at United. More to this than meets the eye, all those off-field rumours?

When United had the pre-season friendlies, Januzaj and Zaha looked brilliant.
But when EPL started, only Januzaj got the chance on his respective side.

And we’re stuck watching lame and boring one-trick ponies Young and Valencia creating nothing.
Young: cheap freekicks from dives and the ever so rare goal once every 6 months.
Valencia: same old story, runs a bit then does his diagonal pass from the right side. Everyone knows that by now.

Where as Januzaj actually goes head on and creates chances and can score.
Zaha does need some more time to settle in, but sure as hell is much more creative than the other options.

Then again, we don’t see what’s happening at Carrington every day.

Bet Moyes will recall Zaha when he sees how he performs in Cardiff 😛
